With BamBamBam! bringing one of the world’s most exciting live bands to the city, Getintothis’ Shaun Ponsonby looks forward to a very special night.
Formed in 2001, the band were born out of the Tokyo club scene, releasing their debut album Pimpin’ three years later. However, it was their follow-up Pimp Master that really put them on the map, capturing the intensity of their live performances and gaining international attention.
The band have since released an album almost every year – with the sole exception of 2012 – and constantly play live, becoming a distinctively in-demand cult attraction.
At its core, the group is about giving pulsating live performances. SOIL & “PIMP” SESSIONS combine the highest musicianship with the coolest of cool sounds and atmosphere. Their brand of jazz is rough around the edges, and completely unadulterated. There is a feeling that they are always teetering on the edge and fall off at any point.
They are only playing a handful of shows in the UK, and this last minute addition at 24 Kitchen St on Saturday October 15 is bound to be something special.
